It makes sense to start baking with pumpkin, I mean . . . it is October. What better way to jump in than this simple Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe? I had most all ingredients on hand and just needed a can of organic pumpkin puree. 23 minutes later, I was nomming on my fresh pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies while the local squirrels were nomming on my porch pumpkins. At least my cookies tasted better.
